The \"Preview Post\" button is very essential for some people. Especially those with a long history with phpbb coding who input the codes manually without the aid of user-friendly icons.

sadly,  no such ability yet.  I\'m working on it.  don\'t think it\'s going to be possible but I\'ll see what I can manage.  also for the most part what you see in the editor is what you\'ll get out.  I can probably fix up an even better editor later that\'ll show you finished result as you type so you can make corrections and preview changes live.   duno if I can pull that off but I\'ll add this suggestion to my long term pile since it won\'t be quick and easy.

Thanks. I hope you can manage something that would save our time and reduce the flood of \"user X edited post in topic x\" messages in the moderation logs. Not to mention it will make the forum looks neater XD

also on a side note renge,  I saw where you tried to embed a youtube video on a news post.  to embed,  use bbcode,  not the vid ref links from youtubes site.

after further investigation,  I found out we already have this feature...  look towards the right of the bbcode insert bar,  you\'ll see two preview options,  one is for side by side,  once is for top and bottom views so you can arrange it the way you want.  previews are generated live as you type so you can make corrections if it doesn\'t look right without having to fight with page reloads
